(Linz, September 25, 2018) 2019 marks the 450th anniversary of the death of Pieter Bruegel the Elder, the outstanding painter of the Dutch Renaissance. On the occasion of this anniversary, delegations from Flanders, the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna and Ars Electronica will present fascinating gigapixel images of his most important works at the next Deep Space LIVE on Thursday, October 4, 2018. The high-resolution photos presented in Deep Space 8K will show a number of tiny details that are usually hidden, even from those beholding the original work.

Bruegel – expertly presented
The images presented in Deep Space 8K by Geert Van der Snickt (AXES Research Group of the University of Antwerp) and Frederik Temmermans (IMEC and Free University of Brussels) will be explained in detail. Also present will be Professor Manfred Sellink, Curator of the Bruegel Exhibition and Director General of the Museum of Fine Arts in Antwerp, and Stefan Zeisler, Director of Visual Media at the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna.

Deep Space LIVE
The Ars Electronica Center hosts a Deep Space LIVE event every Thursday (except holidays) at 7 PM. Each presentation features ultra-high-definition imagery in 16×9-meter format and is accompanied by expert commentary, entertaining stand-up repartee, or musical improvisation. Whether great works from the history of art, space travel, journeys of discovery in the nano-world or a live concert is what you’ve come to behold, Deep Space LIVE stands for enlightening entertainment amidst breathtaking worlds of imagery. Holders of a valid Museum ticket are admitted free of charge.
